Abstract:     
The potential of Cultural Tourism in the India by way of showcasing the rich tribal cultures and the associated economic benefits are beyond debate. The question is of making it sustainable by involving the local tribal communities in this task through the process of capacity building and related community innovations. If this can be realized, we would have realized two goals of equal significance – first, protecting and preserving the unique tribal cultures and secondly economic development. We cannot suppose more than this.
